I agree - I hope Tomba is only intending this for the forum?

Yes this thread only concerns links posted in the forum.

I have a solution ready, but I wanted to add that it will only work for new posts. Older posts have their BBCode parsed and cached, so those will stay the same (if not being edited).

I guess the voting is pretty clear that it should change. I'll inform you when changes are done and see if you're all happy with it.
